  • Very glad to get my first marathon in - went out at a really solid pace but it unravelled from about 14 miles and became a bit attritional after that. had a stitch that crippled me every time my heart rate went up so it was walk, jog, run all the w…
  • Looks like about 18mph cross wind (that would be slight tail wind coming home).   Will hit you around the ring road at the start and heading into the business park area each time.   Could be worse!  
  • Im feeling a bit more hopeful as I think I might have got on top of my hip issues.   I managed 15 miles a couple of weeks back with limited pain and they have improved since then.   I got through 6 miles of the course yesterday in 4 hour pace and no…
  • HA77 said: For anyone who's done Abingdon before or knows Abingdon, what's the best option for parking? I looked at the recommended places and there doesn't seem to be a huge amount of parking. I was thinking of driving up by myself and my fami…
  • AD75 said: Hi folks  Not long now, anyone know if there are pacers ? looking to plod around at 4 hour pace and don't want to lonely ! thanks I will be in this kind of time from too, although I think I maybe a bit slo…
  • How's everyone doing then?   I guess most of us are into a 16 week plan of some kind now? My progress is decent.  Weekly mileage is now up to 30 miles per week with two x half marathon long runs in the bank in the last month (2h 6min and 2hour 8 mi…
  • Old Shadowfax said: You are doing well and with your base of getting some long runs in already, you will reduce your risk of injury- the main reason why at least 30% of marathon entrants can't run on the day.  I ran 3:22 at my first marathon in…
  • Old Shadowfax said: I did my 1st marathon in 2009 having only started running about 2yrs before.  My 1st 10k in 2007 I did in 53mins and by the time I was in marathon training in 2009, I had got that down to 40:24.  I did a half mara 6 weeks be…
  • Thought I should check in just to say I haven't given up on the Ironman goal.   I finished last year with almost 8000 miles on the bike and followed a strict Keto diet with my partner from September to December.   My partner is now expecting so Keto…
  • Its good that any 14 year old is doing something outside and physical in my book... so well done! As for how good it is compared to others I wouldnt worry about that.... concentrate on improving your time next time out and compare your own times.  …
  • Pretty good day today......Up early this morning as GF starts work at 6.30 at weekends.   Slow cooker stuffed full of beef and gravy then off for fasted hill reps in the rain....   Eggs and bacon for lunch then some weights in the afternoon. …
  • Duda the Mutineer wrote (see) Good work TREJ, nice to see you making progress towards your goals again. the worse thing about dropping out of ketosis is the better fat adapted you are the longer it takes to get back in. Two glasses of red wine wi…
  • GF and I have really locked down our diets over the last 10 days to try and get past a little stall on the scales.   Real effort to reduce carbs further, but also to switch protein to fats where ever possible.    The fat bombs we have been having as…
  • Just made fat bombs and frozen cheesecake bites ..... actually amazing ... thanks!
  • Hi - already found it right at the start. Thanks - also on the list
  • Got some coconut oil at lunch so tonight Mathew - Im going to have a crack at some peanut, fat bombs, and some cream cheese, vanilla frozen clouds that I like the look of
  • SuckitupButterCup wrote (see) I make chocolate fat bombs   Could you share your favored ingredients ...there are a lot of recipes out there! Can you make these with butter, rather than coconut oil (just to save me a trip to the shop lat…
  • Has anyone got any good suggestions on Keto friendly treats? I am finding the period between dinner and bed really difficult at the moment.  I am not particularly hungry - but I really want to eat something nice.   Dark, winter nights were my trad…
  • Soya latte with sugar free vanilla is a once a week thing from Costa ... Monday morning treat.... or if we go for coffee during a ride. It's not a regular. Otherwise it's water or coffee with double cream. I don't especially like soya and kno…
  • so plateaus... First 3.5 weeks of Keto I dropped 16 pounds.  I had lost quite a bit of weight on 5:2 before keto so that initial drop astonished me. For the past 4 weeks I have been hovering between 15 st 13 and 15 st 8.    Most of that time t…
  • My gp is an audax cyclist so he is aware ... the problem is that his advice to my gf has been "have a break from the diet for a month and go back to a more balanced diet". The issue with that is that our previous diet was not balanced. It was es…
  • Thanks Duda - I'm going to check that out. Some actual published research would be helpful as I'm a bit tired of google and I'm not too convinced on my Doctors Impartiality. He seems very anti high fat diets from his conversation with my gf …
  • Duda the Mutineer wrote (see) TREJ, can you explain why people should not increase mag supplements?   Im very much not a doctor!  But I have read quite a bit recently during the whole keto education and while trying to work out why I was f…
  • Think it's important to say that taking loads of magnesium is both pointless and potentially dangerous. It's extra salt you want plus a normal level of magnesium. Personally I am taking 100mg of magnesium every other day and adding salt to water…
  • Definitely think it is salt/magnesium related for my issues... its much better today after a real effort to up my intake in the last week, My taste buds have changed to the point I can taste too much sugar for my liking in things I previously adde…
  • Great thanks - Im a podcast addict so more the better ..subscribe!
  • My GF has had some pretty insane pain during her first period on Keto.  Again from reading this is common but the doc recommended having a day off when she comes on.   This time she took his advice and had some chocolate and went with other cravings…

  • Hi, 2.5 months into Keto and so far my weight is down 28 pounds (44 pounds in total lost since April from 18st 10lb to 15 st 8lb).  My GF has also lost close to 2 stone.  I am now wearing smaller clothes than when I was 14 years old! Previously …
  • Guess I should check in!   Can not believe it has been so long since I last posted.   I guess the good news is that my non appearance has been down to general lack of time and pace of life rather than giving up on the whole idea. LEJOG was complet…
